Lauren Sherman - 6/29/2017
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015
"San Diego State University is an opportunity for both academic and personal growth. I learned not only in the classroom, but outside as well. I became a peer advisor, joined the swim team, and met several life-long friends, all while maintaining a 3.9 GPA. The teachers want you to succeed! I was given ample resources and learned so much about Psychology and myself. I am very happy with my decision and I would recommend this school to anybody!"

Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2012
"San Diego State University is an amazing university with lots to offer. I went for five years in order to complete a degree in Bachelors in Kinesiology and a minor in Cellular and Molecular Biology. My undergraduate advisor and teachers were always looking to help us advance in our particular careers, and willing to sit down and talk to you if you were having a problem. The campus is absolutely beautiful and has since made multiple upgrades to buildings and classrooms. On campus there is also a gym with a rock wall, and excursions for students. A pool, badminton courts, basketball courts, and lots more facilities. My friends and I often went to the advanced screening movie nights, concerts and the bowling alley that were on campus. It was truly a great experience and I've gained long lasting friendships with people from all across world."

Ruben Bustoz - 6/12/2017
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2016
"I come from a household where Spanish is the only spoken language and my family had no educational background. I had to overcome many obstacles to be the first member of my family to graduate from college. I obtained my Bachelor's of Science in Criminal Justice at San Diego State University and currently obtaining my MA at The University of San Francisco. San Diego State helped me overcome many obstacles. The academic advisors on campus did a fantastic job of helping me out with my career goals. The financial aid department was very helpful throughout the process and was very reliable. The campus was great and the people I met along the way were absolutely amazing. San Diego State helped me become a first generation college graduate with goals of obtaining higher education. Thank you so much!"

Alec - 3/24/2017
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2012
"San Diego State University (SDSU) is a fantastic institution. For those individuals who are seeking a military friendly university or are applying for an ROTC program, I can't think of a better school to attend. The Student Veterans Organization (SVO) is top notch and provides Veterans and Cadets a welcoming environment with its dedicated living facility for SDSU students as well as an active social club. The Criminal Justice program is highly recognized and it's proximity to a multitude of bureaus (SDPD, Border Patrol, DEA, etc.) makes it a fantastic institution to network. One also can't refute the fact that campus is located just minutes away from top ranked beaches and surf spots such as La Jolla and Blacks Beach with weather to accommodate outdoor enthusiast year round. There is no better place! Go Aztecs!"

Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2015
"San Diego State University has lots to offer. The teachers and faculty are there to help. As long as you set aside time to meet with them they are more than willing to help students. The campus and surrounding San Diego area make for a great college experience. I spent a lot of time in the library, I would advise all students to find a "go-to" area to study daily. Studying in dorm rooms or apartments is next to impossible. GO AZTECS!"

Tia - 2/23/2017
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017
"SDSU is an amazing school! The institution prides itself in making leaders, and I've truly come out as one; having the opportunity to be apart the executive board of many select organizations on campus. I've gained and strengthened a myriad of skills as well have many life changing decisions such as studying abroad. SDSU encourages students to take a study abroad experience and even makes international experience a requirement for some majors which is very beneficial! It was an experience of a life time studying abroad. I have made many long life friends on this campus and experienced moments that I will never forget."
